This amazing topsy-turvy doll pattern was inspired by an idea from one of my testers, Angela Nacnac Francis. It’s a beautiful design and so perfect for Christmas and those winter months. She’s certain to make for an adorable, handmade, thoughtful gift for any little girl. She is pretty quick to whip up and has lovely details such as a beautiful Christmas dress with white ruffle and an adorable peppermint swirl hat, topped with some lovely holly berries. She just screams Winter and Christmas all in one! 🙂 And as you can see from my testers, she can easily become more Santa themed. You may also find the original Cupcake Doll pattern, here.
